Very Good8.0
Consider acceptable for short trip.
Reasonable priced, however got to walk up flight of stairs. Considerably spacious room. Friendly receptionist. Located between two restaurant, hence covenience to eat. But fire risk is also higher since restaurants used fire for cooking. Muslim may not want to stay here because it located in between two pork selling restaurants.
